    Well, in some stores in the US, depending upon the region, demographic, and financial median of the population, some Macy’s stores carry electronics, so why not start carrying consoles or the hardware for them? Sears does, and for a long time, at least in my area, they stopped, until rebranding itself.

    Well sure , but Macys would be my last thing on the list, first i would go for best buy and gamestop stores, i would choose SEARS first before maycis.. seriously, they are targeting MOMS who will buy the games thinking kids will love it and they will lose weights

    That is true but from my experience with Sears they only have 5 games top for all the consoles. Sears is also the worst place to go get a videogames, consoles, and accessories.

    @4 Oh I would never shop Sears for things like that, but at least they carry something. The one close to me actually has a decent selection, although it is limited to new releases or family titles.

    @3 I have to agree with you on that. I can’t see a bunch of late-teen to early-twenties folks hanging around Macy’s to play Kinect.
